Where to stay in Yellowknife

Accommodations in Yellowknife come in the form of small hotels, bed and breakfasts, and guesthouses scattered throughout the city. For the most interesting scenery, stay north of the center near the Bush Pilots Monument. If you choose to visit between November and March to chase the northern lights, make sure you stay well out of town for the best chance to see the spectacle without the intrusion of light pollution.
